...sadly I thought that was coming. At least we'll get another round at the end of the year.

Full time entry list grows to 14. Baumanis teams up with Larsson and JC. 

BAUMANIS JOINS KYB TEAM JC IN AUDI S1 FOR 2020

https://www.fiaworldrallycross.com/article/10587/baumanis-joins-kyb-team-jc

I'm interested how competitive Baumanis and Larsson will be. I think the Audi is more competitive than the Fiestas he drove the last couple of seasons. But somehow Baumanis never has fully convinced me he is a top driver for the title in WRX. But I hope I am wrong.

nice to see he's back, and nice to see another team competing as well.

agreed about Baumanis' level. to me he's decent: good enough to almost always make the semis and often the finals too, but podiums don't come easily. I'd put him in roughly the same category as drivers like Marklund, Doran, Timur, and Timo. tier 2, more or less. (tier 1 being ones who regularly get podiums).

Agree with you on all points there @JorritVD. I think the Audi is a competitive car, but I wonder if Baumanis has the pace (and Larsson has the consistency) for them to be challengers.

Brilliant to see two of the latest specification EKS cars getting some use this year though.
